Hi Hoping someone can help here, i have a word document sent ny email which has a powerpoint document embedded within the text. i can open it by double clicking and it works, but if i copy and paste it to my desktop it turns into a 'scrap' document (.shs file extension) How do i save it as a powerpoint, as if i try and send a scrap object by email, the mail program thinks it is unsafe and wont send it. If i try and convert it to powerpoint, i get a message that there is no text converter to open this document. Can anyone help please
When a Powerpoint item is embedded in a Word doc it becomes part of the document and hence cannot be saved as suggested above by rossgolf. If you right click and select "presentation object" you should get an option to Edit, and possibly there may be other options to Save? I don't have such a document to play with at the moment, but it might give you a clue.
